The Advanced Placement Psychology exam is one of the fastest growing exams offered by the College Board. The average percent of change in the number of students taking this exam over the past five years is 12.4%. With 238,962 students taking the exam in 2013, the AP Psychology exam is the sixth largest exam, surpassing AP Biology and AP World History, and its growth is expected to continue. Given the work required in a college-level class, instructors want their students to earn college credit for their efforts. There are many things instructors can do to prepare their students for this challenge. In this article, Kristin Whitlock, a 21-year AP Psychology veteran, shares ideas to increase students' chances for success on the AP Psychology exam.
